(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) The Republican State Leadership Committee‘s Judicial Fairness Initiative has pledged to spend more money on state Supreme Court races than in any previous year, though the group has not yet announced a dollar amount.
As part of the judicial initiative, the RSLC released an advertisement that exposes the Democratic Party’s sue-to-blue strategy, which it used in the 2020 cycle to change state election laws.
Democrats have failed to sell their radical policies to the American people –– but rather than change their unpopular agenda, they’ve resorted to state courts to change the rules.

Former Attorney General Eric Holder admitted the Democratic Party’s legal strategy in 2020.
“What we have done at the NDRC is file lawsuits in state courts using the state constitutions and redrawn the lines that way,” he said.
The JFI released an internal memo—titled “Democrats’ Past Spending on State Court Races Paying off in Redistricting Fight, Stopping Them Next Time Starts in 2022″—that analyzed the Left’s spending patterns in swing-state judicial races, RSLC reported.
The JFI stated that the Democrats have successfully gerrymandered so many states because they have spent heavily to ensure Democrat-majority state Supreme Courts.
“They are reaping the benefits of a multi-year campaign dating back to 2015 in which they have spent nearly $58 million on key state Supreme Court races across the country to install liberal judges who rule in their favor in redistricting cases,” wrote Andrew Wynne, VP of JFI.
Since 2015, spending on state Supreme Court races has increased by 5,219 percent in Michigan, 389 percent in Wisconsin, and 293 percent in Ohio.
JFI sees the 2022 midterm elections as the perfect time to correct this spending imbalance and ensure impartial judges on state Supreme Courts.
“With the massive failures Joe Biden and Democrat-controlled Washington are producing on a daily basis, it’s quite possible that 2022 will provide the best political environment for Republicans for the remainder of the decade,” Wynne wrote.
